Sunday Mission Review - Sabretooth


It's time for... my Sunday Mission Review!

Today I'll be reviewing... Home Invaders!


Things to Watch Out For: There are three things to worry about in this short mission. Three BIG things. Namely, the Sentinels.


These massive robots appear roughly halfway through the mission. I find the only way to defeat these guys is to constantly run behind them, dodging their attacks, and quickly clicking to hit them with one little attack before ducking behind them again. After you get a full five stars, you can use your hero up to effectively destroy the 'bot.

Boss Tips:

Best.

Cutscene.

Ever.

When I first started out in this game it took me FOREVER to learn how to beat Sabretooth without dying, (I was a REALLY WEAK Cyclopes), but it turns out there is a trick to it: Sabretooth stops and laughs for eight seconds, and his attacks usually aren't powerful enough to stun you once you get into your combo. If worse comes to worse, it's usually pretty easy to run away from his leaping attack.



Difficulty Rating: 4.5/10

Summery:


A short, rather easy mission, Home Invaders ranks 4.5 out of ten, mostly due to three Sentinels and a particularly annoying attack that Sabretooth has.

Next Week: Bombs Away!
